Abstract

connections between Koji junrei and Watsuji’s personal and philosophical develop- ment, such as how his interest in Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and European travel affected his sense of how one should think about art and history, as well as how the perspective he presents in this book fits into his complicated relationship with Japa- nese cultural identity and cultural nationalism. The book itself chronicles Watsuji’s visits to several of the most famous temples in the old capital of Nara, as well as his visit to the National Museum in Nara. Each chapter corresponds roughly to one day in Watsuji’s trip. For much of the book Wat- suji is primarily interested in dating and determining the provenance of the artworks that he views, paying particular attention to what he thinks the works reveal about both the possible dissemination of Greek culture through East Asia and the transmis- sion of Buddhism from India through China and to Korea and Japan. He seems very keen to identify the elements of the works that mark them as being influenced by these different cultures, but he doesn’t argue that any one work is the product of a single culture.
